Ashmolean Museum

Raising awareness and funds for Britain’s oldest public museum

The museum required us to showcase plans to bring the Ashmolean's Egypt collection to a 21st century audience.

Result

Our brochure walks potential donors through the current issues which will be addressed by the new galleries as well as highlighting key pieces of the collection.

Testimonial

The Ashmolean recently opened its new galleries of Ancient Egypt and Nubia to great acclaim from the press and public. This £5m project was funded solely through private sources, and the project brochure designed by William Joseph was key to successfully securing philanthropic support.

The William Joseph team enabled us to show off the strengths and beauty of our Egyptian collections and to convey the look and feel that the finished galleries would have. They created a tactile, unpretentious brochure that very effectively encouraged people to become involved with the project. William Joseph were extremely professional, taking a diligent and collaborative approach. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
